my quote is my civilian take on "whoever sweats the most in training, bleeds the least in war." And besides, the endorphin rush is worth the pain. After a while you associate lactic acid with happiness.

I've done a few cross races and it is a kind of suffering that people can imagine if they haven't done it. Balls to the wall for an hour plus a lap with jumping off and carrying your bike over barriers is very crossfit. I averaged 180 bpm for my last cross race and my max is only 194. Road racing is almost easy by comparison.
